School is just about to resume, and your kids deserve one last night on the town before they get back to the grindstone. The Midwest Magic Jubilee
is exactly the sort of grand finale this summer needs. The world's great magicians and illusionists perform three shows in three nights, and each one is different. Marvel at the mental prowess of Danny Orleans and the Incredible Jan Rose, who can tell what you're thinking. Delight at the comic prestidigitation of Tom Burgoon, and thrill to the lightning-fast quips and tricks of Steve Barcellona. Shows take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (August 13 to 15) at the St. Louis Lambert Hilton Hotel (10330 Natural Bridge Road; 314-669-6650 or www.mmjubilee.com
). Tickets are $8 to $20.
